TRAINMEN AT EASE;
NO TROUBLES SEEN
Brotherhood President Says
Employes and Directors
. Understand Each Other.
BENEFICIAL LAWS NEEDED
William G. Lee Pleads for Surety
That Is Safely, Since Records
Show One Trainman Is Killed
Every Hour and 1 7 Minutes.
"Railroad employes and railroad di
rectors have common interests. They
should, and generally do, work in a
common direction to accomplish a
common end," cays William G. Lee,
president of the Brotherhood of Rail
road Trainmen, who arrived in Portland
on an official visit yesterday, accom
panied by Mrs. Lee.
"We seldom have any serious differ
ences with our employers," he con
tinued. "We understand one another
well enough by this time. We both
know that our progress or our adversi
ties are mutual. Why shouldn't we
Mr. Lee is typical of the sane, pro
gressive, conservative labor leader of
the present day. Under his Jurisdic
tion, first as vice-president and then
as president, extending over a period
of 20 years, the trainmen's differences
with the railroad operators have been
kept at a minimum. He has seen the
trainmen's wages increased 40 per cent,
and the personnel and efficiency cor
.No Troubles in Might.
"And we have no troubles in sight,
either." he commented good naturedly
"This would be a nice time to begin
demands for wage increases," he con
tinued with a touch of satire. "Busi
ness all over the country has been bad,
and it has been worse for the rail
roads than for many other industries.
Our men are feeling the effects of
Within the last year, he said, more
than 50.000 members of his organiza
tion " have been forced into idleness,
but conditions are beginning to im
prove, especially in the West, he re
ported. "Everyone is hopeful of better times
in the East." he explained, "but they
are rather slow in coming. But out
here in the West times actually are
setting better. Our men are beginning
to feel it."
"Full Crew" Law Knarted.
Within the last few years Mr. Lee,
together with the heads of the other
organizations of railroad men, has been
active in obtaining the enactment of
"full crew" laws in various states,
against the active opposition of the
railroads. Sixteen such states now
have such laws.
"That's one point where we differ,"
he said, with a grave, sidewise nod
of his head. "The railroads are op
posing us because it adds slightly to
their operating expenses. But it is a
natural development of the "safety
first' movement. It provides addi
tional safety for the property of the
Tailroads as well as for the lives of
our men. It is true that an extra
trainman is not needed on every trip,
but when he is needed he is needed
"Just the same as that fifth tire,"
pointing to an automobile with the
familiar "extra" tire attached. "That
man may not need that tire in a dozen
trips, but when he does need it, he
. will need it bad.
Longer Trains Hauled Xovr.
"And then another thing. The rail
roads aio hauling much longer trains
now than when the present standard of
crews was established. The increased
motive power has made that possible.
There is no limit to the motive power.
Where they hauled from 15 to 30 cars
years ago they are hauling from 60
to 100 cars now. The extra man in
the crew does not entail an expense,
by far. in proportion with the increase
in the volume of traffic handled by
a single crew in a single train."
But Mr. Lee was equally insistent
that the trainmen are co-operating
with their employers in obtaining leg
islation that is mutually beneficial.
They have contended actively against
the radical rate reductions proposed in
tome states and have Joined hands in
the "safety first" movement.
"But we want saiety that is safety,"
he insisted. "We don't believe that
sticking the sign 'safety first" on a
fence post or on a station-house is go
ing to provide safety. There must be
some active effort by the officials as
well as by the employes. Our records
chow that one of our men is killed
every , hour and 17 minutes. Why
shouldn't we favor safety?"
Mr. Lee was given a cordial recep
tion on his arrival, with Mrs. Lee. from
San Francisco on the Shasta Limited
yesterday afternoon. A big committee,
headed by F. J. Damon, president of
the Portland lodge of the Brotherhood
of Railroad Trainmen; C. H. Francis,
. F. C. Manley and W W. Northcutt. past
presidents, greeted him at the station.
As Mr. Lee had not been in Portland
for 12 years, some of the. boys thought
they would have difficulty in "spot
ting" him. But no such misfortune.
Mr.- I.c Looks tke Irf.
"That's him," cried one of the mem
bers as a thiek-chested, broad-shouldered,
sun-burned individual stepped
from the Pullman. It was "him." an
right, for he looks the part- His eyes
beam good nature, but they are steady
and set well apart, indicating shrewd
ness. After a series of handshakes ano
"glad-to-see-yous." Mr. and Mrs. Lee
were driven to the Imperial Hotel in
an automobile displaying the regula
tion white and green .flags fore ana
Lee B. Hendricks, one of the veteran
conductors on the Shasta run, hati
charge of the train that brought Mr.
Lee to Portland. Mr, Hendricks is a
member of the Order of Railroad Con
ductors. one of the organizations with
which the trainmen's brotherhood i
affiliated. These two organizations.
together with the Brotherhood of Lo
comotive Firemen and Brotherhood of
Locomotive Kngineers, form a federa
tion independent of the American Fed
eration of Labor, although the two fed
erations work in frequent sympathy.
Mr. Lee was the guest of honor last
night at a banquet at the Chamber ot
Commerce, at which members of the
' four organizations, as well as -a num
ber of local railroad officials, joined
in doing him honor. This afternoon
Tie will address the trainmen in their
hall at 264 Madison street, and to
night he will attend a joint meeting
of the four railroad organizations.
A committee from the Women"
Auxiliary of the Brotherhood of Rail
load Trainmen was at the station to
meet Mrs. Lee. Mrs. Jewell Bruce wa
chairman of the committee. Other
members were: Mrs. Emma 1. Holmes,
Mrs. Bernice Dobbin. Mrs. Emma L

WOOD PRICES CUT

The city, will meet bitter competi

is said, when it goes into the retail
wood business, soon in an effort- to
unload the 10.000 cords ot wood pro
duced last Winter at the woodyards
operated for the unemployed. - - '
Wood dealers have lined up to fight
the city's venture and force the city to
sell Us wood at a heavy loss if it
sells it -at all. The dealers already
have cut their prices to such an extent
that the city cannot compete without
a loss of from 50 cents to 75 -cents a
In face of these conditions prospects
are that Portland will pay less to keep
warm next Winter than for many years.
Fir Sell at 9-t.SO a Cord.
The prospects are that the . best of
fir wood will be available at less than
to a cord. At present the best first
growth wood is being offered at $4.50
a cord delivered and stacked and the
chances are that there will not be any
great increase when he heavy buying
season starts. ' -
The dealers can make a small profit,
it is said, at cord wood prices which
the city cannot meet. The city's wood
represents an outlay of more than $5 a
cord. Every cent less than that price
will be loss to the city. If the city
has to compete at $4.50 a cord the loss
on the $10,030 cords will b,e between
$5000 and $7000 it is said.

being stacked on the. West Side, here
a sales office will be established soon
and, the- wood will be offered at retail.
The money, derived .will go into a fund
for use- in paying for wood cutting
next Winter. The plan is to make
it a revolving fund.
Wood dealers do .-not , cherish the
idea of the municipality entering -into
competition with them and ' it is for
that reason that the price cutting has
been resorted to. it is declared. , There
is a -chance, of the prices going still
lower. Every cent1 of reduction means
that much more loss to the city and the

great enough so that the city will

Southern. Pacific Will Extend

as Corvallis Acts.

der Plans Drawn for Portland,
Eugene & Eastern Line.
If the City of Corvallis grants the
Southern Pacific Company an accepta
ble franchise, work on the electrifica
tion of the line between Whitcson and
Corvallis will begin within the next 30
days and will be completed before the
Winter rains set in next Fall.
This substantially, is the assurance
given yesterday by D. W. Campbell
assistant general manager - of the
Southern Pacific, upon his return from
Corvallis, where he attended a meet
ing of the City Council on Friday even
ing. Ralph K. Moody, attorney for the
company, accompanied him.
The Southern Pacific now has all the
equipment and material assembled for
construction of the new piece of road
and is eager to begin the work. Elec
trification of the Whiteson-Corvallis
line is an Important step in connection
with the Southern Pacific's plans of
converting more than 300 miles of Us
lines between Portland and Eugene
from steam to electric operation.
Original Plan to Be Followed.
The Whiteson-Corvallis link was in
cluded in the original plans proposed
by 'the Portland, Eugene A Eastern
when that company was incorporated
as a subsidiary of the Southern Pacific.
Robert E. Straho'rn, president of the
Portland, Eugene & Eastern, who will
retire from office on July 1, when -the
company loses its corporate identity
and becomes merged with the Southern
Pacific, fjrst intended to electrify this
unit coincident with the electrification
of the Portland-McMlnnville lines. Fi
nancial depression caused the company
to suspend all activity after the work
had been completed as far as White
son a point about three miles south
of McMinnville. The company, it is un
derstood. intended to make McMinn
vilie th terminus of the first unit, but
the high price of real estate there
caused it to extend to wniteson.
Now tltat the Southern Pacific In
tends to operate the electric lines as
a part of Its steam system, Mr. Camp
bell will have active charge of the
work, both construction and - opera
tion. Early Work Proposed.
"The directors have made an ap
nrotiriation for this job," said Mr,
I'amnhrll vesterdav. "and if we can

Corvallis we can begin the work right
It is understood that the differences
between the Corvallis city officials
and the railroad are slight. Tne com

It appears, however, that a misun
derstanding exists over the assess
ments that the company is to pay for

this question must be disposed of be

The Corvallis Council will meet next
xrniidav evening. Mr. Campbell and
Mr. Moodv have been invited to at
tend. It is probable that the terms
of franchise - can be agreed upon at
that time. The railroad officials have
made no proposals. They will permit
the Corvalli.i people to suggest tne
terms, they say. and will reserve the
option of acceptance or rejection.
The Whiteson-Corvallis line is 43
miles long and will enable the company
to operate through trains, electrically,
between Portland and Corvallis.
